Throughout history, the living God has partnered with ordinary people like you to transform the world. Jesus is the living God! He is calling you, active in your life, and has significant plans for you. Imagine how people could be healed, places could be transformed and problems could be solved if every person was mobilized towards these ends. Get to know the living God who loves you and is calling you! Discover your unique part!

A writer of the holy Scriptures wrote to ordinary everyday believers in God like you: “I am earnestly calling you to walk in conformity with the calling to which you were called.” (Ephesians 4:1) The writer is saying, you have a call, now get to it… walk, act and live in a way that matches with the incredible worth and weightiness of this calling that YOU have been given. Have you discovered God’s call for you? Maybe you are seeking a new direction? The living God is calling you!
